Bring out the trash with the best Honkai: Star Rail Misha build and teach any rude guest a lesson they won’t soon forget. Misha is a character following the Path of The Destruction and deals Ice Damage, though his whole thing of being a hotel bellboy and fighting by dropping luggage on his enemies isn’t exactly cutting the image of a follower of Nanook.

Misha’s Skill, R–Room Service, deals Ice Damage based on his Attack to a target and adjacent enemies. In addition, it increases the hits of his Ultimate by one.

His Ultimate, G–Gonna Be Late!, deals Ice Damage to a single target based on Misha’s Attack with its first hit, while each subsequent hit does the same and has a base chance to Freeze the target regardless of inflicting Weakness Break. This Ultimate has three hits by default, which can be expanded to a maximum of ten. Misha’s Talent, Horological Escapement, adds one hit to his next Ultimate and regenerates three Energy for Misha whenever an ally consumes a Skill Point.

Misha is just a humble bellboy, but he knows how to defend himself.

You can obtain additional copies of Misha to increase his Eidolon Level and unlock more boons. Eidolon 1 increases the hits of his Ultimate for each enemy on the field, adding up to five hits to the current counter. Eidolon 2 adds a chance to decrease the target’s Defense for each hit of Misha’s Ultimate, while Eidolon 4 increases the Ultimate’s damage multiplier for each hit. Finally, Eidolon 6 increases Misha’s damage when using his Ultimate and recovers a Skill Point the next time he uses a Skill.

Honkai: Star Rail – Misha: best Light Cones

Misha would ideally want some Effect Hit Rate boosts, but Light Cones from The Destruction are not able to provide that. Instead, he’ll have to grab whatever Attack and Break Effect (since his Ultimate should reliably inflict Weakness Break) he can. This will maximize his damage output in the most effective way, which is why On the Fall of Aeon, the free 5-Star Light Cone available in Herta’s Store, is a solid option for him.

Best Light Cones for Misha:

  • On the Fall of an Aeon (5-Star)
  • Something Irreplaceable (5-Star)
  • Indelible Promises (4-Star)
  • Nowhere to Run (4-Star)
  • Under the Blue Sky (4-Star)
  • The Moles Welcome You (4-Star)

That must be same heavy luggage.

Honkai: Star Rail – Misha: best Relics

If you want to increase the amount of Freezing Misha can cause, you should definitely get some Effect Hit Rate on him – that would make him more of a disabler and less of a damage dealer, but might be useful to keep your team alive as it would deny the enemy of opportunities to hit back at you. If you want to focus on his damage output, then Attack and Critical stats are the way to go. As always, you want to try and get some Speed as well.

Best Relic Sets for Misha:

  • Hunter of Glacial Forest (4) – +10% Ice Damage, +25% Critical Hit Damage for two turns after the wearer uses their Ultimate.

Best Planar Ornaments for Misha:

  • Inert Salsotto (2) – +8% Critical Hit Rate, +15% follow-up attack and Ultimate damage when the wearer reaches 50% Critical Hit Rate or higher.
  • Pan-Galactic Commercial Enterprise (2) – +10% Effect Hit Rate, up to 25% of the wearer’s Effect Hit Rate are added to Attack.

Prioritize the following Relic and Planar Ornament stats for Misha:

  • Head – HP (Primary), Critical Hit Damage %, Critical Hit Rate %, Attack %, Effect Hit Rate %
  • Hands – Attack (Primary), Critical Hit Damage %, Critical Hit Rate %, Attack %, Effect Hit Rate %
  • Body – Critical Hit Rate % (Primary), Critical Hit Damage %, Attack %, Speed, Effect Hit Rate %
  • Feet – Speed (Primary), Critical Hit Damage %, Critical Hit Rate %, Attack %, Effect Hit Rate %
  • Planar Sphere – Ice Damage % (Primary), Critical Hit Damage %, Critical Hit Rate %, Attack %, Effect Hit Rate %
  • Link Rope – Attack % (Primary), Critical Hit Damage %, Critical Hit Rate %, Speed, Effect Hit Rate %

Time is always of the essence for Misha.

Honkai: Star Rail – Misha: best teams

Misha benefits from having characters on his team that consume Skill Points quickly, as this helps him regenerate Energy and maximize the power of his Ultimate. Naturally, such a team will want assistance with restoring Skill Points as well.

Qingque eats a lot of Skill Points, which can be partly recovered by Bronya who also buffs her damage output, which in turn strengthens Misha’s Ultimate. Huohuo is light on Skill Point use, though you can swap any other healer into this composition as well – some sort of sustain is always required.

Imbibitor Lunae is another possible Main DPS Misha could accompany.

Honkai: Star Rail – Misha: ascension materials

Here’s everything you need to know to get Misha ascended to the maximum level and upgrade all of his talents.

Misha requires the following ascension materials to get to level 80 in addition to the necessary XP:

  • Credits x246,000
  • Dream Collection Component x12
  • Dream Flow Valve x13
  • Dream Making Engine x12
  • Dream Fridge x50

You can collect Dream Collection Components, Dream Flow Valve, and Dream Making Engine from enemies in Penacony’s Dreamscapes as well as the Simulated Universe. You can create or exchange them through the Omni-Synthesizer on the Astral Express, too. Dream Collection Components are one of the base materials you can easily farm through the Daily Assignments to your characters, making for a steady income of the material. 

Dream Fridges are dropped by the Stagnant Shadow in The Reverie (Dreamscape) or gained through exchange. The best source of Credits are the Bud of Treasures Golden Calyxes in the Great Mine, Artisanship Commission, and The Reverie (Dreamscape).

Fear the power of Misha's mop.

Misha requires the following materials to upgrade his combat abilities and Traces:

  • Credits x2,400,000
  • Dream Collection Component x28
  • Dream Flow Valve x42
  • Dream Making Engine x42
  • Borisin Teeth x12
  • Lupitoxin Sawteeth x54
  • Moon Madness Fang x105
  • Past Evils of the Borehole Planet Disaster x12
  • Tracks of Destiny x5

For the materials already mentioned, check above. Borisin Teeth, Lupitoxin Sawteeth, and Moon Madness Fangs can be farmed in the Crimson Calyx found in Scalegorge Waterscape on the Xianzhou Luofu. As usual, you can create the high-level materials by using lower-level materials in the Omni-Synthesizer on the Astral Express.

Past Evils of the Borehole Planet Disaster is a rarer material only gained from the Echo of War (Seclusion Zone) domain by squashing the big bug found there, while Tracks of Destiny can be obtained during time-limited events, the Embers Exchange, the Nameless Honor, or as a Simulated Universe Points Reward.
